(no dust jacket) [good solid copy with light shelfwear, faint dampstaining to rear cover]. (B&W photographs, photo endpapers) "The record of a glorious adventure over the big game country of Africa, 60,000 miles by airplane." Yet another in the numerous chronicles of the adventurous couple from Kansas, Martin and Osa Johnson, who traveled to exotic lands (and shot documentary film along the way), primarily Africa and the South Pacific, and were quite the celebrities in their heyday. This, alas, was the last Johnson book to be published before Martin's death in a plane crash in January 1937 -- but Osa carried on, and in fact became even a bit more famous and successful, as her 1940 memoir "I Married Adventure" was a best-seller.
